ASA survey reveals self-regulation is effective in digital media

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) today publishes the findings of its Digital Media Survey 2008. The report reveals that where the self-regulatory rules apply in digital media, there is a high compliance rate. Of the 551 ads surveyed by the advertising watchdog, only 16 seemed to breach the Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) non-broadcast advertising code, a compliance rate of 97%. A PDF of the report is available here.
